Get to know the Remedyforce team – meet Seema Joshi, Lead Product Manager

As a Remedyforce Product Manager, Seema Joshi works closely with customers and cross-functional teams at BMC to understand Seema_Post-it_factory.JPGcustomer needs and help build innovative solutions. In the 5 years that Seema has been with BMC, she has spent the last couple of years helping Remedyforce customers derive more value from the product. Prior to that she managed products in BMC’s IT Operations and Monitoring portfolio, and was involved in conceptualizing and driving focused programs like Customer Advisory Board, Customer Outreach programs, etc. for the product line. In her job as a Product Manager, her favorite props include lots of post-its (to help closely listen to customers), a set of lenses (to understand both immediate needs and long term strategy), and glue (to effectively communicate through the value chain to help deliver stellar products).


An engineering graduate with ITIL certification, she is also a Pragmatic Marketing and Institute of Product Leadership certified Product Manager. A Product Management enthusiast, Seema is a founding member of India Product Management Association (IPMA) - Pune Chapter, a Saarthi (impassionate volunteer) at iSPIRT (India Software Product Industry Round Table) and featured Product Management blogger at ProductNation; and likes volunteering to “pay it forward” in her spare time. She also conducts mentoring workshops on product strategy and product success subjects with TiE - Pune (The Indus Entrepreneurs - a global nonprofit dedicated to fostering entrepreneurship).


Outside of the product world, Seema lives in Pune and loves spending time with family and friends; writing poetry; being in the outdoors; and travelling. Having started as a young student traveler for sports, she considers herself lucky to continue to do so—it’s something that keeps the learner in her going to discover and learn new things.
